Another tough day yesterday, with Camp David Accords my only get. And I said Marie Callender for Maria Callas :oops:
It's so strange how wheelhouses work, after two tough days this was my best day ever with a five-pack, thanks to the only Opera diva I ever, ever, heard of. I will bask in the limelight until the next Opera question :lol:. Nunes and EPO were tip of the brain gets, like putts that lip in instead of lipping out :). I reasonably could have completed the six-pack, but hair bands is no help to me and it seemed un-guessable as a result so I just punted.

You may not take any solace in this, but I'd vote for that for the season's Very Best Wrong Answer.

Totally. I hope Thorsten saw it. :lol:

Oh I definitely thought about that and would consider it an honor! I just wasn't sure if it's as good as whatever other candidates there are.

Generally speaking, anything we come up with is significantly better than what actually gets nominated.

Unsure if shameless self-promotion is frowned upon on this board, but I have begun a blogging project in which I attempt to write a "companion question" to each question that appears in LearnedLeague (not published until after a match day has concluded). It can be found here:

One of my best match days this season, and yet I lost 8(5)-9(5)

I thought very carefully about defense and assigned the zero to Vertigo - the only question my opponent missed - despite his respectable film score. He previously got both the Mildred Pierce and The Road to (xxx) questions correct, so I figured this one was a gimme, with multiple angles of attack. Oh well. Looks like I’ll be “C”ing you again next season

I was pretty happy about getting 4 and still lost 4(4)-8(4). I know I really don't belong in C rundle, so I'm pretty much guaranteed to get relegated back to D, where I normally belong.

First 9 games of the season: 5 wins, 3rd in the rundle.
11 games since: 1 win, 13th in the rundle.

It's a good thing my opponent only got 2 right, because I couldn't have defended any worse if I'd known what their responses were. Played completely against their percentages, but I guess (just like me) there's only one German football club they've ever heard of.

Oog. 5 games to go and only a 3 loss buffer...

Those are some good ones. And yes, that kind of self-promotion is perfectly fine.

THREE six packs for me last week. Regression to the mean seems inevitable after that!

Since the start of last season, I've had as many ties as wins. #ARundleLife
I'm having my best season ever- in terms of qpct- thanks to two 6-packs and six 5's, but everyone brings their A-game when they play me.

Dang! That's 3 more than me for the whole season (although one of my 2 5's this season was a 9(5).)

I have no six packs this season, but still lead my C Rundle with a 12-4-4 record. I'm winning with defense because my total match points are far below those around me. :shock:

It did help that I had my first forfeit win of the season on Friday where I got what is my usual number right (three).

Boy, am I going to get killed next season if this keeps up. :oops:

Those three are the sum total for this season for me.

This one's been absolutely brutal for me. Qpct is usually around .660 for me, and I'm barely above .500. I blame winter.
